Happy 10th Birthday Craft Challenge -Birthday Blog Hop

Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)
Good Morning,
This year Craft  Challenge is 10 years old and still going strong.

Our team is a group of dedicated, talented, lovely people lead by the only team member who has been present from the start, Jo.

If you feel at any time that you would like to join our fabulous team, then just have a look on our DT Call page, which will inform you of any openings on the team. Or, simply get in touch with us and let us know.

And now it's time for our birthday celebrations. This week our challenge is

Birthday!

(what else could it be?)

Anything that fits in with this subject, qualifies for entering into this challenge.

There is a maximum of 1 entry per person for this challenge and as always it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started). Although we love to see your work, it would put those contestants that put more than 1 entry in at an unfair advantage. The same limit exists for the prizes to be won on the blogs of our DT members.

Please also make sure to turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We do not leave a comment if you have word verification switched on.

The rules this year are very simple:
     1.     Make a project for this challenge and add it to the Craft  Challenge Blog  and your entry will be put in the random draw for the prize bCuteNCraftyMommy.
   2.     Visit the blogs of our DT and enter into their Linky or their comments if no Linky is in place to be put in the random draw for the prize on their blog.
    3.     The Top3 will be chosen as every week and each of the Top 3 will win a prize this week too.
4.     No sentences hunting this year I'm afraid.



     You should have come here from Monika's Blog and as you can see your next stop is  back to CRAFT Challenge Blog to finish the Blog Hop.


The prize on this blog is
A $12 voucher for Di's Digistamps


So come on get your crafty stash out and have a go.
You can enter your project onto the blogs of all our talented designers as well as the main challenge blog, where there are prizes for the Top 3 entries too!

Shake it at 613 Avenue Create


Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist – Create a Shaker Card
The twist was suggested by my fabulous Design Teamie Natalie
Now I have to admit that although I always admire shaker cards created by other crafters I tend to shy away from these because I am always stuck for ideas.
So I looked around the internet and found this fabulous tutorial by Anne from Annespapercreations - here

Although I have bauble cutting dies that I could have used I wanted to experiment with my Cricut Maker that my DH bought me for Christmas ( I am still very much a novice where it is concerned).
This is my take on Anne’s beautiful shaker Christmas Decorations.

I cut out four layers of stiff card stock to form the base and glued two together for the front and two for the back.
Two layers of acetate.
The glitter paper is from a DO Crafts pack I picked up at the range and it doesn’t shed.
The pearls and pearl trim are from my stash.
The foliage is made from my favourite foliage dies which were part of a £3 set from The Works.
The seed pearls in the shaker are from my stash and the little snowflakes are the waste from a Martha Stewart border punch.
The poinsettia was cut from a Tattered Lace die that was free with one of their magazines.
The tassel was also from my stash.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges…..
